The Bible

The Bible is God’s message to us. God’s Holy Spirit inspired about 40 different men to write the books of the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Bible is available in many different languages around the world.

There are many books written in the world every day. Some books give us historical information or facts about the earth. Other books are written to entertain us. Some of these books will be printed again and again. But many will be out of print in a few years. God’s Word, the Bible, is different.

1 Peter 1:25 tells us how God’s Word is different. “‘But the word of the Lord lasts forever.’ And that word is the Good News that was told to you.” God’s Word will always be with us.

Think about what our world would be like without the Bible. People would not know what is right and what is wrong. They would not know about God’s plan for their lives. That would be a very sad world!

Even though the Bible was written many years ago, it is still important for us. Take time to read God’s Word today. Depend on it to lead you in the right way. And thank God for giving you His message that will last forever.
